This February, the guild hosted a workshop by Gail Fricker.
The workshop was attended by 15 people. Gail took the participants through the subject of telling a story in the first person and how to use gesture in such a telling. We discussed the line between telling a story and a theater performance.
We also discussed and Gail demonstrated the judicious use of props and costume.
Participants worked in groups in pairs on stories narrated in the first person and then gave feedback to each other on the use of gesture and voice.
It was an enjoyable and successful morning.
We were joined by Betty Bennett and Angelica Ottewill from the Peterborough storytellers.
Thanks to Ann Busby who took registrations and Mary who organized the refreshments.
Derek Brisland Co-Chair.
